So apparently I've done the impossible...

Based on everything I've read, the PE is not supposed to run Hulu+, correct?

I am currently watching the season premier of Glee on Hulu+, on my PE. And I have *no clue* how I got it to work. I bumbled around and apparently found the magic button, but don't know what it was. When I tried to use Titanium Backup to copy it from my PE to my wife's, it didn't work. Whatever mojo mine spontaneously spewed forth to make H+ work doesn't exist on my wife's.

If anyone is interested in looking at my specs/logs/whatever, I am more than happy to send them along for the good of the community. If we can get H+ working for everyone that's just one more bit of awesomeness for these little things. Just tell me what you want to see, as I'm a rank novice with these particular machines.

Um, I open the hulu+ app. I search for 'glee' (or any other show I know they have on there). I hit play. It plays. I am entertained

Seriously, the player *works*. I don't know how or why, but it does, and I have no idea how I got it to do so.

bob - you've probably posted the info before, but just out of curiosity...what software version are you on? Is your PE rooted/non-rooted?

This is exciting, indeed!

a link to the standard hulu+ app? I had to pull it off my phone (because I have never been able to get the android market to work), but I originally downloaded it from the market:

https://market.android.com/details?i...=search_result

I am running a rooted ermine 1.01.002 install on my PE.

Hulu+ has a one week free trial offer. If I could download the app, I'd try it out for sure!

GOT IT!!

You have to try to install the flash player 10.3 APK. Yes, it will fail. That doesn't seem to matter, whatever it does before the installer bombs out apparently clicks something to make the hulu player function. I just did it on my wife's PE and it worked. Happy day

What version Hulu apk are you running? I tried version 1.0.116 with no luck. However, the latest version on the Android market is 1.0.139 and this could be why I couldn't get it to work. Either that or it's because my PE isn't rooted and is running Ermine 0.9.

I installed Hulu Plus and then Flash Player 10.3 (which of course fails) in that order, and then uninstalled Hulu + and tried to install Flash Player 10.3 first and then Hulu + and still no luck.

The version I have is 1.0.124, and I copied it onto my wife's PE with titanium backup. I believe this is the APK I used, maybe it will work for you.

Unfortunately, no luck. It keeps telling me my device is not supported. Did you by chance change a property that identifies the device?

You know, I did. In my attempts to get the market working, I altered /system/build.prop to have the following line:

ro.build.fingerprint=google/passion/passion/mahimahi:2.2/FRF91/43546:user/release-keys

in place of the existing fingerprint line (instructions found here)
